A Gaston man says his Second Amendment right helped land two men behind bars. Two Lexington County men were arrested after a high-speed chase near Gaston Thursday afternoon.
Police say it was a simple attempted traffic stop that turned into a high-speed chase.
“This chase started because Gaston police attempted to make a traffic stop on the two individuals due to a seat belt violation,” Capt. Adam Myrick with the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department said. “Actually, two of them – the passenger and the driver.”
Deputies and officers say it went on for about 10 miles through southern Lexington County near Gaston. At one point, they say, a deputy used what’s called a stop stick to help put an end to the chase.
